We have a new grandchild! Christopher and Emily’s first child has arrived. Baby Astrid was in no hurry to join the world, and arrived with much fanfare 11 days late.
She is the sweetest little thing, born 6 pounds 10 ounces. Such tiny little hands and feet. She has a long lanky frame and a full head of dark hair.
We travelled to BC for her arrival, enjoying a visit with 8 month old Jacob while we waited. And I finally managed to find time to get Astrid’s quilt finished.
It was wonderful to meet our newest grandchild and spend time with our first. I love watching my kids with their own little ones – musing a teething baby or soothing a fussy newborn.They have developed a selflessness. They are doing such an awesome job as parents and I am so proud of them. And I cant wait until they are all out here at the Ponderosa in September.
Enough holidays, time to get cracking and get the house ready for the grandkids. I am super excited about our next project – flooring. At long last, the flooring is being installed on the main floor. The house is all ready and the installer just arrived. Going to be a busy week. Stay tuned for pictures.
